Six Easy Steps to Burn Belly Fat

Are you still wondering how to find diets that work for burning belly fat? In previous posts, I have emphasized the need to combine good workouts with a diet that focuses on fat burning foods that boost your metabolism. Here are six simple steps you can take. Make one change per week to make it easier on yourself but make it permanent.

Exclude Dessert Food for Breakfast

Who eats dessert for breakfast, I can hear you say. How about muffins, sugary cereals and bagels? Eaten at any other time of the day, these foods would classify as sweet deserts. Avoid these if you want to lose weight fast.

Modify Your Eating Schedule

Stop binge eating late at night. A pint of ice cream and a bag of potato chips while watching late night TV will make you fat. Have a bigger late afternoon healthy snack and a healthy dinner later in the evening. There is no problem with having a healthy dinner 30 minutes before going to sleep.

Cut the Junk from Your Shopping Tray
Avoid stocking your kitchen with sweet “treats” and replace them with bowls of fresh fruit. If your household demands sweets, then keep them out of sight and out of reach. Instead, make your fruit bowl visible to everybody. Stock your fridge the same way. Make healthy foods visible and hide the junk in the back.

Avoid Processed Foods in Favour of Natural Foods

This is what the processed food industry does not want you to know. Processed foods are all “modified” foods including bread, biscuits, cereals, chips, fruits canned in syrup and many more. Replace these foods with fresh fruit, vegetables and nuts.
Here are a few suggestions:

  • Replace your morning toast and, instead, eat an apple and some spinach with your eggs.
  • Combine your steak with a plate of broccoli instead of potatoes or french fries.
  • East some raw nuts, like walnuts or almonds, with your morning coffee in place of sugared cereals.

Cut the Sugar from Your Sport Drinks
Most sports drinks that supposedly boost your energy are laden with sugar. Read the drink label. You don’t need a sugar injection either during or after exercising or playing some sport. Drink water and add one or two pieces of fresh fruit. You definitely do not need to force sugar into your body during or after exercising

Find Diets That Work and Measure Your Progress
The “authoritative” WebMD website lists 89 different diets and it is well known that not even the experts can agree what diet is good for what purpose. The most important step is to stop getting fooled by “fad” diets. Instead, find what works for you.

  • For the next two weeks, eat a variety of foods and record your total calorie intake per day.
  • Identify any calorie excesses and decide how you can “normalize” your daily calorie intake.
  • Maintain your workout schedule – a minimum of 3 x 45 minute full body workouts per week.
  • Measure your body weight at the end of each of the two weeks.

There is one, and only one, formula that will cause you to lose weight fast. You have to burn more calories than you consume. The truth is that your body burns fat continuously, even while your sleep. When we talk about “fat burning foods”, they are foods that improve your body’s metabolism which, in turn, causes you to burn belly fat faster.
